There are several global car rental companies such as Hertz, Avis and Europcar located at the airport in Santiago. It is advisable to organize your car online before you arrive and then go to the rental car reservation desks on the first level of the Central International Hall to collect your keys and be directed to your car.
The airport has space for over 4,000 cars spread over five parking lots. There are short-term, medium-term and long-term parking areas so you will be charged the best rate possible for the amount of time you are parked. All parking spaces are secure.
The Holiday Inn Santiago – Airport Terminal Hotel is situated immediately opposite the terminal building; no airport shuttle is provided because the terminal is such a short walk away. Another option, which is located next to the airport and does offer an airport shuttle, is the Hotel Diego de Almagro Aeropuerto.
You can take a taxi to downtown Santiago, but it is important to go to the Airport Ground Transportation counter in international arrivals first and request a reference for taxi fares before going to the taxi rank. Once you have the fare you can hop into a waiting taxi; the journey to downtown Santiago should take around 45 minutes.

Cons: "Several of the food items were either cold or overdone. I asked hostess what the deal was (because their food service is usually great) and she explained that in this new plane (Boeing 787) they removed a lot of the working areas for the crew. They have less space to work in order to be able to prepare food and drinks compared to Qantas's other planes (Airbus A380). This is also a brand new plane for this crew (literally the first flight for some for some of them), and they didn't know where some of the things on the plane were. I imagine after they've used the plane for a while and learn where everything is, they'll get better. I'll find out on the return flight back to Melbourne."

Cons: "Food was mushy Boarding notice was short The price of the flight"
Pros: "prompt checkin, boarding, baggage came out fast"
Cons: "no drinks service prior to meal, seats squashy, don't eat the stir fried noodles they are tragic, entertainment system didn't work properly - again."
Cons: "- delayed flight because of delayed crew - They've had many crew injuries helping customers moving overhead luggage, so they asked customers to sort their own luggage out. Hey, how about teaching OH&S to staff and employing staff that can perform their duties?"
Pros: "The crew is always nice and approachable. The entertainment is usually high but this time around there weren't many good choices."
Cons: "The food is AWFUL, and has been getting worse as the years go on. Absolutely terrible taste, stomach-churning smells and gross consistency. During boarding I was profiled by one of your gate agents and "selected for further screening" ... not fun. No explanations, just surly, inattentive agents performing further checks on items that had already been twice-checked at security. Awful service."
Pros: "Case was off quickly"
Cons: "No choice in seating"
Cons: "Seats too closely squashed together Screen faulty towards end of flight Tried unsuccessfully to check in online - did not get an aisle seat which I specifically requested all along"
Pros: "Comfortable plane. Good entertainment. Very nice chicken salad. Friendly staff."
Cons: "The soggy pies were a bit, well, soggy ... The changeover at Dubai seemed unnecessary. Having to go through security tho get from airside to airside was a bit daft. The crew gave little information on how that changeover was going to happen, and when they did it was just before landing."
Pros: "Friendly crew."
Cons: "Nothing that is unique to Qantas or just flying in general."
Cons: "Great service , very caring and clean . Looked after me as I had to use a wheelchair . Thank you :)"
Pros: "The interior of the seats a very nice. QANTAS blankets and cushions are comfortable. I also like the little drop down net under the seat for you feet to rest in. The QANTAS flight staff are great. I also like that they don't go down the aisle with trolleys a lot (just for the meals) and that they just come around with jug and cup for drinks."
Pros: "A cut above all others"
Pros: "Qantas has really upped it's service in the last couple of years, their crew on this flight were very professional."
Pros: "The no fuss but highly professional approach of the cabin crew. The level of comfort in the cabin, with a business class upgrade."

Pros: "Crew very friendly"
Cons: "Departure 50mins late, arrival 10mins late then wait 45mins for bags to arrive ... not good enough"
Pros: "Staff were wonderful"
Cons: "The only thing I found was the seat where I sat was a bit noisy. I had to have the sound on my movie turnd up loud to drown out emgine noise."
Cons: "You misled people not telling I have to pay for luggage"
Cons: "As it was a short flight it was ok but their system of checking in/ baggage drop off is really poor and disorganised. Everyone was queuing together for baggage drop, checking... it was a mess and took ages. It’s unfair on those who have already checked in online because you were ended up queuing with everyone else."
Pros: "Everything on time. 30 minutes ahead of schudle"
Cons: "Not to overbook the flight"
Pros: "Nice space in the aircraft and the crew was really nice too."
Cons: "The delay was very tiring."
Pros: "Good movie selections, nice crew"
Cons: "They need to be able to let customers know meal ingredients during pre-orders to assist with food allergy. I have a tomato allergy, so giving me an option of "Vegan" or "veggie" with no other detail is unhelpful."
Pros: "That it took me from A-B"
Cons: "My wife’s hand luggage was taken off her and put into the hold, against her wishes. When we arrived in São Paulo, the bag handle had been totally destroyed and the bag dented. During the flight we were only given water, the toilet had no paper or soap. Very poor"

Cons: "If the passenger name was changed as requested and I would not lose the money."

Cons: "Over 5 hours delayed with no explanation, no compensation and no food offered."
Cons: "Overbooked and put on another flight 5 hours later"
Cons: "I've flown a lot of different business class flights in my time and these are the narrowest I've ever seen. I am not overweight but I felt very restricted in these seats. Add to the narrow seats is the design of the seat and armrests themselves and you don't have much space at all. No way I was going to be able to work on my laptop in this LATAM business class seat."
Pros: "Departed exactly on time & arrived early. Excellent!"
Cons: "Check in / bag drop was very slow and impersonal. Cabin service restricted to tea, coffee, or soda - for a 3 hour flight (5am-8am). Cramped seating."

Cons: "Food quality could be better"
Cons: "Delayed 5h, missed all connections, no help from crew"

Pros: "Great crew comfortable seating on time. Good short haul flight"

Pros: "La tripulación muy atenta"
Cons: "La comida"
Pros: "LATAM is now a budget airline - don't expect any comfort, quality service or food"

Pros: "The aircraft was clean, comfortable and well laid out."
Cons: "Some of the staff had a problem with English enunciation which makes it very difficult for aging passengers to understand"

Especially they treat every passenger equally or all the same with given out for any extra cost e.g. food, drinks, entertainement any thing we need while we are up in the air needs. Different from the first class section service in special airfare cost. Love to fly every time when I want to visit my families around the world. Keep it up the good work LATAM Fika Maiava - Sydney"
Pros: "Service on board great people"
Cons: "Overbooked flight we had to wait with baby and 4 years old kid till last minute to know if we could get on board or not. Latam wanted us to fly in three different seats we told them that we were happy to flight next day but they pushed till last minute waiting. When that said yes you're flying they forced us to move faster otherwise the fly would be delayed. Mdvela@gmail.com or 0064212154973 if you want to known more ( there is more). Will fly airnz only from now on and will advise everybody to do so."

Pros: "Good attention by the airline solved my problems"
Cons: "The flight got changed to departure 1 hour earlier, didn't get any notification as the company who I bought the ticket through didn't give my contact details to the airline.

I am quite disappointed with this!"
Pros: "Comfortable flight, great flight attendants, quick boarding procedure"

Pros: "Was pleasantly surprised to find more legroom, more storage and a great selection of entertainment.."
Cons: "Foods service was very very slow. Foods were not good at all"
Cons: "They lost my bag, which I didn't get back until my return trip home. I planned a week long hiking expedition and LATAM lost my hiking pack. I had to then rent all my gear. I was very very disappointed in their ability to keep track of my checked bag. When I arrived at my destination they had no idea where my bag was. It took days for anyone to contact me about if my pack was found or not. I will be avoiding this airline from now on if possible."
Pros: "The crew was fabulous. Very helpful and upbeat!"
Cons: "The food wasn’t very good."
Pros: "All good"
Cons: "Free cup of tea!! Perhaps lightly more leg room"

Cons: "Never board check in luggage at lcy, they don't know what to do with it"
Pros: "Crew were very friendly"

Cons: "Nothing to dislike"
Pros: "The crew was incredible"
Pros: "Staff/crew were fantastic, extremely friendly, very down to earth, like family"

Pros: "American Airlines is kicking your guy's butts when it comes to comfort."
Cons: "Tiny seat for international flights is nearly inhuman! I became an overnight contortionist sensation whether I liked it or not."
Cons: "My mother needed assistance with the disable wheelchair and was given one but the staff that was meant to wheel her into the flight abandoned her and she almost missed her flight."
Pros: "Gave me a bagel before landing."
Cons: "Boarding process was disorganized, no one helping adjust suitcases to maximize space (one guitar laid on its back instead of standing on its side took an entire bin instead of half), the flight attendant woke me up to lift my seat back because the person behind me wanted to eat. Their flawed design is not my problem."
Cons: "Not enough overhead bin storage space. If they want to start charging people for bags they need to improve their overhead storage ability. This was a commuter flight from Amsterdam to London. So the entertainment was not really there"
Pros: "Left and arrived on time. Bag travelled free."
Cons: "No legroom for tall people. Stuffy cabin."
Pros: "Good range of in flight snacks and food"
Cons: "No Wifi capabilities"
Pros: "Boarding pass to from LHR to Hyderabad was not iisued at SAT airport. The guy with wheelchair at London didn't help in getting me boarding pass in time. My flight scheduled left. I had to wait for the next flight enroute to Delhi rather than hyderabad directly. I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Cons: "Non-issue of boarding pass from LHR to Hyderabad at SAT airport USA. Callous attitude of the guy who didn't help me in getting me the boarding pass at LHR. Enrouting me through Delhi to Hyderabad instead of a direct flight I had to wait for more than 10 Hrs at LHR and Delhi. There was heavy delay to reach my destination."
Pros: "Speedy boarding process, very polite staff, good food."
Cons: "Very small serving of drinks, not a lot of entertainment on offer."
Pros: "Crew was very attentive and food and drink good as on most flight to and from City Airport. Seats very comfortable compared to main fleet. City Flyer is still worth paying the extra which most flight by main fleet ex Heathrow or Gatwick are not."
Cons: "Flight was delayed and boarding not great as we were kept waiting in a hot bus outside the aircraft for 15 minutes"
Pros: "On time, very pleasant and helpful staff"
Pros: "Enough said"
Pros: "New bedding is comfortable!"
Cons: "1. No toiletries were available for business class even on this flight. 2. There was no food choice especially if you prefer vegetarian. 3. Even if One presses a button to request for some water, no one comes to the seat; this habit of BA continues for the good part of the last decade. Reminded me why I stopped flying BA! 4. No wifi even in Business class! Someone in senior management of BA needs to fly SQ, Cathay, Qatar, Emirates and learn what can be improved. Most of these airlines have better service in economy than business on BA!"
Cons: "Bumped from flight although booked months in advance. Completely screwed up connecting flight as a result. Polite but inflexible."
Pros: "Price was goo £200 cheaper than the BA price"
Cons: "Cabin very cold over the whole journey at the end of the day you pay peanuts get monkeys But BA has a very tired fleet compared to say Emerites"
Pros: "Usual BA trappings, efficient check in including automation"
Cons: "BA didn't put my bag on the flight, and didn't email me about it (asking me to fill out a form before departure) until an hour into the flight."
Pros: "Crew did really well in their roles."
Cons: "BA are no different than all operators in the drive to put as many bums in as many seats as possible. News flash. Only so many sardines go in one tin. Make seats more comfortable and more leg room and we would pay the premium for that reputation as a caring, comfortable operator."
Pros: "It got me to my destination safely."
Cons: "Everything- BA’s relentless push downmarket means it’s justbtoo awful for words. Ryanair with better livery but more expensive."
Pros: "Nothing to like"
Cons: "Flight at a very inconvenient early time, though booked months ahed. The aircraft had no leg room at all, being excessively uncomfortable. You could not stay in the market with this rubbish in Australia."
Pros: "Nothing really was good or stood out in a positive way."
Cons: "Horrible lie flat seats with absolutely no stowage room. Seats are super cramped with 8 in a row you feel like being transported in a cattle car. Crew was most decidedly unfriendly. We were boarded on time despite the fact BA knew the flight was delayed and sat at the gate for an hour. Food was equivalent to hospital food. U must be crazy to fly business in BA. Never again."
Pros: "The Crew were great"
Cons: "Boarding could have been more efficient"
Cons: "My checked bag didn't make it from Barcelona to my destination (new orleans)."
Pros: "Polite staff professional"
Pros: "Flight on time, friendly crew."
Cons: "Not so good meals. For a 9 long-haul flight only one meal provided, other was a cheap candy bar. Other carriers do offer breakfast. Traveled with child and did not allow priority boarding at LHR. Limited leg room, I assume this already a trend well known by travelers."
Pros: "Comfort but only since I paid extra to upgrade to business class. World Traveler Plus is mediocre at best."
Cons: "Boarding process was chaotic."
Pros: "One of the most comfortable cabin interiors I've been in for 747s"
Cons: "Flight boarding was delayed fairly significantly, the second time this has happened to me out of two flights. Certain "hand luggages" were allowed onto the plane despite then failing to fit in overhead compartments and slowing down the whole procedure. Food was bad."
Cons: "My suitcase didn't arrive at the airport in Bologna with my flight. I am still waiting for it and inside I have all I need."
Pros: "Very busy flight but staff very professional"
Pros: "Crew in board was great"
Cons: "Representative at gate was rude reminding me I was late when we had to wait on bus for others."
Pros: "I got there. It was safe."
Cons: "Entertainment system shut off."
Cons: "Flight crew was just ok; nothing they did made me want to fly with British Airways again. Salad was good but the chicken nondescript."
Cons: "I didn't like the fact that one has to pay for any refreshments on the flight, even for coffee, juice, or soda. When I asked for water, the flight attendant assumed that I wanted to pay for bottled water; I had to specify that I wanted regular water."
Cons: "Would have been 5 stars except for 12 hours out of 14, of howling baby which is obviously not down to the airline but pretty exhausting to survive (poor parents)!"
Pros: "Flight was good . In long flight the food quantity should be increased but quality was good."
Cons: "There was no entertainment in first class for a cross country flight"
Pros: "The choice of new movies!"
Cons: "On my side crew lady was almost rude, for sure not friendly nor smiling. A lot of space for improvement there."
Cons: "Better seats, the main cabin extra seats were just like the other main cabin seats. One particular stewardess was very rude to all the passengers, while the steward Jeffery was very nice and friendly."
Pros: "Mostly pleasant flight crew"
Cons: "Better gate agent and mechanics"
Pros: "Crew was good. I slept and they didn't bother me."
Cons: "Nothing I can think of"
Cons: "Boarding slow"
Pros: "If I had to choose one, the smiling faces of the flight attendants."
Cons: "The way they handle luggage was awful. They made me check in my luggage (was not necessary) and they broke an expensive makeup item in my luggage."
Pros: "That the flight attendant was really helpful"
Cons: "If the flight would have been on time"
Pros: "The service"
Cons: "The wait"
Cons: "Confusion over plane boarding"
Pros: "Getting off. Entertainment system."
Cons: "The food. Working toilets. 10 abreast seating is too tight on 777. Avoid."
Pros: "This was a quick flight - 39 mins I also got an upgrade too"
Pros: "Wide choice of films on the flight, boarding was hassle free."
Cons: "Crew could have been much politer when asking about the food wishes of others. Seemed to have no idea how to walk through the aisles, hitting my head and shoulders more than once while walking through."
Cons: "They should let you know, at booking time, that seat 35J is smaller than the rest of seat in Economy class"
Pros: "Great crew, comfortable chair. Entertainment was great."
Cons: "Everything was great."
Cons: "American airlines conection left us behind. Have to wait 24 h for next flight in Dallas Airport DFW with no assistance of any kind, because of "weather conditions". It a shame, never again American Airlines."
Cons: "Seats what happened to towlets after food Also never asked if we would like water etc I felt invisible"
Pros: "The seat was cormfortable and the entertainment was dope!"
Cons: "Communication. The pilot did not say when he was landing and considering it was a rough landing it would have been helpful to say. He said we shall be landing like 40minutes before Then quiet"
Pros: "The crew were nice, glad I paid for the extra legroom."
Cons: "The food was only so-so, but it’s only a short flight so you can’t expect too much."
Pros: "The crew was amazing! And the seat was comfortable."
Cons: "The over weight passenegers need to keep their arms and elbows, within their seat space. And not been inconsiderate and turn a light on at night, while they are sleeping and the other person next to them, is not, because of it!!"
Pros: "On time with easy boarding and very helpful staff."
Cons: "Can't fly American Airlines without a flight delay. Have to plan flight delays into my trips because every time I fly American there is a delay. Certainly encourages me to fly other airlines."
Cons: "More seat room side to side"
Cons: "Waites in line on the tarmac for 35 mins to take off in a hot plane."
Cons: "Multiple delayed flights leading to short connection time. Despite meeting stated time, denied entry and surprises that my ticket was changed with no effort to correct said error at the gate despite adequate time prior to take off."
Cons: "Thank reserved seats at time of purchase for a British airways plane and paid for extra legroom. When I checked in, I was routed to American Airlines and the seats were the same in the entire aircraft except for first class. Why did I pay and shouldn’t I get a refund?"
Cons: "One crew member was rude, another confused. The grey blazer crew member was friendly"
Pros: "on time"
Pros: "The legroom."
Cons: "There was nothing not to like."
Pros: "Good legroom on economy"
Pros: "The plane was not busy so services took about 5 minutes, everyone had 2 seats minimum and generally quiet. Had it been busy, it would have been different in that seats were not very wide, aisles very small, if the seat in front reclines and you don't, you can't see your screen and not a lot of space in general."
Cons: "If you want to select your seat, be prepared to pay £175 per flight. This is ridiculous! Second meal was a very bare bbq beef pie or sweet potato pie... On their own with nothing else and it arrived 30 minutes before we landed so very rushed. On a 9.5hr flight the 2nd meal needed to be an actual meal and come sooner than it did."
Pros: "Awfully rude flight attendants Took multiple buses I guess American doesn’t pay good money to the airports"
Pros: "Good food onboard and very comfortable seats"
Cons: "American Airlines postponed my flight for 12 hours without a concrete explanation. After complaining they offered for us to travel with Latam but my luggage wasn’t transferred to the other flight. I arrived more than 12 hours ago and I’m still waiting to hear from them."
Cons: "Our last 6 flights have all been changed or delayed significantly. Then they loose our bags on a direct flight. Won’t fly America airlines again!"
Cons: "First flight TUS to DFW was delayed by 3 hours causeing us to mist all the remaining flights. Had to scramble to find other flights DFW to LHR and LHR to DUB. We arrived at our destination 10 hours. No reason for the delay was given. Lousey service on AA."

Cons: "Freezing cold air conditioning. Every person I could see was wrapped up in their blanket before we had even taken off."
Pros: "Great films and tasty food"
Cons: "Had to run to gate after two buses to reach correct terminal. Saw info that flight was closing. Held up at gate due to confusion with my boarding pass. Limited leg room on flight. End of flight huge queues at Dallas airport for security. After a long flight a passenger does not need to be corralled through excessively long winding lines."
Pros: "My flight was delayed many hours so I wasn’t going to make my connecting flight in NY it to Toronto, There service agent was great and found me a seat on a later flight that was direct. Overall, happy with their service found me the best flight available."
Cons: "I never could figure out why the flight was delayed, there were a couple of other delayed AA flights too. I was supposed to get to Toronto at 2pm for a 5pm presentation, but I didn’t get in until 9. I also felt their website was deceptive or maybe needs updating,When I bought my ticket It stated that I would get 3 bags complimentary since it was Canada that wasn’t the case, I was charged for $60 for both."
Pros: "I had a connection flight to JFK I came before the time about 15 min and crew saw me but she told me, sorry someone took your seats I lost around 4000$. This happened at Dallas airport."

Pros: "Great crew"

Cons: "It was very cold on the flight, even with the blankets we were given."
Pros: "Generally clean plane with good entertainment system and technology overall. Diabetic meal much better than in the past."

Pros: "The touch down at MSP. Was sitting over the wing and barely felt it."
Cons: "Was told carry on needed to be checked because there wasn't any more overhead room for my 9X14X16. So then I had to dig through it at the gate to remove lithium batteries and it took an additional 20+ minutes at MSP to get to baggage claim/wait/claim bag. There was plenty of room in overhead storage for my bag."
Pros: "Amazing entertainment selection, comfortable."
Pros: "The crew was Great!"
Cons: "The plane was dirty. It smelt. Someone had their cat on the plane in a carrier but it meowed. It just made me feel dirty and the plane smelt musty."
Cons: "Everything. My booking confirmation was with United Airlines only to get to the airport to find that they had subcontracted the flight to a budget airline. Eurowings. The food very substandard. If you were on a basic ticket, you were only entitled to water and no food. So people are travelling on long haul flights without being offered anything as standard. Passengers on these tickets were not aware that they would not be served.any food which is probably unethical. They offer to sell you food if on a basic ticket"
Cons: "Was lied to concerning that 23kg of checked in luggage was included, turned out it was not."
Cons: "More space on the flight"
Cons: "Flight was delayed 45 min"
Pros: "Movies and drinks"
Cons: "More frequent service"
Pros: "Was able to get an Economy Plus seat, which is nice - great legroom for an almost 6' tall person and power plug is very handy. Entertainment & screens on the 787 is very good. Regular distributions of water was very helpful since I wasn't able to fill up my bottle before getting on the flight."
Cons: "Not a great amount of food available, and one of the larger cabin crew members kept brushing my arm as she walked past, which didn't help me get any sleep."
Pros: "That the flight wasn't any longer than it was"
Cons: "A bit hot n stuffy"
Cons: "United Airlines in our experience runs late putting a lot of pressure on any ongoing connections . Not clean . Staff not friendly . Only sometimes helpful."
Pros: "We arrives early."
Cons: "Very long walk to next gate. No golf carts wanted to bring US. Wife is pregnant"
Pros: "Request for supply of earplugs was kindly met. Cabin crew were attentive and friendly. Food was some of the best I have ever eaten in Economy."

Cons: "Aircon was too cool"
Pros: "The crew were friendly & efficient, the flights were on time, & the gate staff kept us well informed of any changes."
Pros: "It was just okay"
Cons: "Nothing just flying in a smaller plane"
Pros: "For all the turbulence that we heard about, the flight was extremely smooth which I attribute to the pilot's skills"
Cons: "We kept on being told that there was going to be turbulence and that it would be too rocky to serve food/drinks - but there was limited turbulence and the flight was very smooth. There was also a delay in leaving as there was an extra bag in hold but they 'couldn't find it'."

Pros: "Flight was nice and empty"
Pros: "Cabin cleanliness is below average"
Cons: "Cabin service is average"
Pros: "Arrived early 787-9"
Pros: "After United lost our luggage in Houston we had to file a claim in Auckland which meant we missed our flight to Wellington. Ground crew were super helpful and got us on the next flight 30 mins later. Cabin crew were great and sorted us out with water and snacks before take off as could tell we were desperate after flying in from London via Houston."
Pros: "Clean modern plane"
Cons: "Switched to American airways so the booking reference did not work. Had to call them to get a new reference so I could check in. But could not get boarding pass. Food not too good on the flight."
Pros: "I liked everything was excellent"
Cons: "There was a 10 minutes delay"
Pros: "My daughter traveled as an unaccompanied minor overseas and was taken care of reasonably well. The staff in LAX were not as friendly but then I am just glad that everything was handled for her at such a young age being taken through such a big place. My daughter said she slept very little overnight due to a rude passenger who was talking very loudly and using a phone. But over all she was happy with the in-flight entertainment and I was pleased with the amount of baggage allowed at no extra fee."
Cons: "The staff were a bit impatient and rushed. Didn't seem to notice the actions of rude passengers."
Cons: "Couldn't connect to the onboard entertainment system through my laptop."
Pros: "United seems to have simplified how it separates the boarding groups, so getting on the plane was well organized. The 787 aircraft was spacious and comfortable, which seems to put both passengers and crew in a good mood. Lots of entertainment options were available, so the three hour flight flew by. And we arrived early! A great experience on United."
Pros: "On time!! Arrived in Athens early:)"
Cons: "Very poor quality food! For breakfast I received a rock-hard croissant and a fruit plate with 9 grapes and 4 tiny pieces of mellon. The 767 plane was extremely noisy. Good thing I have noise cancelling headphones. Limited selection of movies and for some reason I could not locate any song or music categories."
Cons: "Not much choice of good movies"
Pros: "TV and movie choices should be according to 2018 instead of1980. Also TV should be from running Era"

Cons: "We had a delay our flight up two hours"
Pros: "Landed early"
Cons: "No wifi or substantial snacks/dinner. Paid for bag"
Pros: "WiFi and entertainment on board the aircraft"
Cons: "All goof"
Pros: "I have always loved flying Lufthansa however we didn't fly Lufthansa, we were on United for both legs of our flight. Like all American opperated airlines they skimp on comfort in order to pack more people on their flight. I hope we are on Lufthansa on our way home at least."
Cons: "We were on United, see above."
Pros: "Entertainment and leg room brilliant!"
Cons: "Good was disgusting"
Pros: "The journey was smooth"
Cons: "Very cramped with staff who I found overbearing. Not the most pleasant experience."
Pros: "No faults"
Cons: "Very pleasant flight"
Pros: "The cabin crew were very kind and helpful, always smiling and happy to be of service."
Cons: "It wasn't Air New Zealand, but operated by United Airlines. The plane was uncomfortable, and the entertainment system seemed clunky, unintuitive and outdated. The selection of entertainment, poor in quality, I thought. There were lost of things to watch, but a lot of it was of poor quality. The food was acceptable, but again, it felt like it was done on-the-cheap, and I was eating airline food a la 20 years ago."
Pros: "The flight was quite smooth and left virtually on time. Boarding was simple and fast and the economy plus seats were extremely comfortable."
Cons: "The food was quite poor. United can learn a thing or two about food by flying Cathay Pacific to see what decent airline food is like. As far as entertainment is concerned, while United had a great movie selection the method of controlling the playback was quite poor. Pausing the movie would actually make it stop on several occasions."
Pros: "Relatively comfortable seat, decent entertainment and nice crew."
Cons: "50 minutes on the tarmac in Newark waiting for the gate."
Pros: "bad movie choices"
Pros: "Nothing really everyhing was mediocre."
Cons: "Delayed baggage, smelly flight, food"
Pros: "Crew were very helpful and flight was direct and on time ( unlike my other UA experience hence I started taking Air New Zealand )."
Cons: "Thought it was Lufthansa. Missed the partwhere it says “operated by”. So it wasnt the flagship Lufthansa aircraft but United Airlines. It was an ok flight with UA. Cant complain. It was a direct flight."
Cons: "Pretty much everything I hated, starting from the time they charged me extra 100 bucks for second luggage which was mentioned as free both by kayak and Lufthansa to me, major breach of customer trust. Apart from that the crew was in general rude, didn't find the experience anywhere close to comfort"
Pros: "Flight was on time."
Cons: "Long flights should have something edible."
Pros: "Outstanding service. On time very nice employees"
Cons: "No complaints at all."
